Students enrolled in the 'Distance' mode will undertake this course fully online. Students enrolled in the 'Attending' mode will undertake an experiential learning component.
Students undertaking this unit will examine theories and develop skills in the practical
application of simulation to replicate and teach aspects of health care practice.
Simulation will be explored in relation to the type of knowledge, skills, attitudes or
behaviours that can be taught with a particular emphasis on the method of feedback
used by the health care teacher. A broad range of teaching and learning situations will
be critiqued for their application to the simulation environment.
